Light

Most varieties need at least half a day to a full day of sunlight. In extremely hot areas some afternoon shade is recommended.

Water Icon

Water

After planting, water well and allow the soil to dry almost completely between watering. Succulents don't like to have wet feet. When you do water, water thoroughly.

Temperature Icon

Temperature

Average room temps 65-75°F/18-24°C suit this tropical plant perfectly. It doesn't like the cold; don't expose it to anything below 50°F/10°C.

Planting

Remove plants from their pots and plant making sure the soil level remains the same depth on the plant. Once established, your succulents will benefit from a layer of pebbles, pea gravel, or moss spread on the soil around the plant. This is also very decorative.

Soil

Succulents need good draining soil. We suggest a mix of regular potting soil and some sand, a 1 to 1 ratio! For container planting you can purchase cactus soil or incorporate sand, gravel or volcanic rock for better drainage. The container you are planting in should have a drainage hole or put crushed rock on the bottom before your planting medium.

Fertilizer

Most succulents need very little fertilizer. Watering with a well balanced fertilizer once a month will be all they need but not necessary.
